In the period 1982-1984 CP again went to B&O ( by now, officially Chessie System) for leased power.
A westbound at Belle River, Ontario shows clean 5746 with the white frame stripe leading B&O GP38’s 4800-4816 past the service equipment on Mar 22/84. In a couple of years those GP38's would become the domestic power on CSX lines within Ontario, so instead of watching them go by, I'd be operating them.

  1. Good question, that’s quite a few years ago and I don’t necessarily recall a station back in those days ( or conversely, knowing where it once was). Maybe Geoff Elliott or Earl (The Pearl) Minnis have a shot of it, on here.

  2. Great photo Bruce. I have yet to make it to Belle River…the maintenance shed to the right…would this be sitting on what used to be the station grounds, or foundation?
